Lesson Plans for Field Trips to Mesa Verde National Park
In 2015, the Shared Historical Landscapes Project brought together Crow Canyon Archaeologial Center, Mesa Verde National Park, local school districts, and several government and not-for-profit community organizations to develop a plan for a K–12 educational collaboration. A set of three Mesa Verde National Park Field Trip Lessons were a result of that collaboration. The lessons are grounded in interdisciplinary, 21st century skills and Colorado State Standards, and they use best practices in place-based education, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) education, experiential learning, and online learning.
